Always inspect and gauge New AR Parts

No matter who makes or sells the item. Always inspect and gauge your AR Parts. Even the best make mistakes.

LaRue Firing Pin from a Build Kit.

Do you see it?

The tip is has a perfectly centered crater. Reads .026 on the Firing Pin Protrusion Gauge. Should be .028 minimum.

his nails are bathed in synthetic motor oil for the perfect sheen.

I just gauged a bunch of stripped lowers I recently purchased. All the "lower end name" lowers gauged fine (hammer/trigger pins and pivot and take down pins) but a "good brand" lower gauged small on the trigger and hammer pins..... not what I expected.

When I bought my LaRue barrel, the included bolt was still magnetized from the MPI process, not the end of the world I know, but still a bit surprising.

The lesson here is...

Always check (at a minimum visually inspect) your new stuff

Always wear clean underwear

Never take a MDS destined pic without attending to personal grooming first



FTR, I would never have guessed LaRue would sell anything that wasn't right/first rate

Is moisturizing the same thing as lubricating? If so I have a problem.

My lube is frozen.
